I'm happy to share this short video that gives you an idea of what my Foldable Dispatches books look like after they are printed, folded, and cut. This video is of the third book in the collection. Egyptian Waters. These books are very simple for you to make once you download them. I even have a video to show you how.

This is how it looked in my studio during autumn of last year. I was prepping panels. Laying down color on each from a selected palette.

More than fifty thousand marks were made for this drawing. Finally got a full video together to document my drawing that I made back in 2014. I have it rolled up and waiting to be seen again. It's available to go live somewhere more permanent. Any takers or suggestions? It's drawn on heavyweight drafting film and I've installed it in numerous places using magnets. No framing necessary.

I took the process pics and propped up my iPhone for the video. Still exhibition images are by Elena Bouvier done with available light. Sound is by Lesley Tao Mowat.

It was a busy and productive week in the studio. Tiring in fact. The weather has changed so I had to bundle up and move around. That means drawing big and keeping warm.

Occasionally I put my iPhone to work capturing my work process. Here’s a little video of some work this week.

In Part 2 after another twelve plus hours I finished drawing the blue dots on this commission.

I didn't document the whloe drawing but felt the need to do some to compliment my previous video.

The commision is almost complete. A few more dots of another hue will completer the drawing.

My work is about process and materials, it is methodical , repetitious, and meditative.

I made a few timelapse videos and stitched them together on my iphone. It was fun and painless. This is part one. It's fun to look back on what happened when you make a piece. The timelapse makes it speedy but each line is drawn slowly.

Sometimes it's really a good day to look at someone else's work and get inspired.
